Daily Eucharist Quote – St. Thomas Aquinas

"In short, we may say that the consecration of this sacrament, and the acceptance of this sacrifice, and its fruits, proceed from the virtue of the cross of Christ, and therefore wherever mention is made of these, the priest makes use of the sign of the cross."

Daily Virtue Quote – St. Peter Julian Eymard

"See in Jesus sacramental the virtues you ought to practise. Appropriate them to yourselves and complete them in yourselves. Yes, the Eucharistic virtues are incomplete in this sense, that Jesus can no longer perform their meritorious acts, and that He takes but their state.

Daily Eucharist Quote – Pope Benedict XVI

"Our communities, when they celebrate the Eucharist, must become ever more conscious that the sacrifice of Christ is for all, and that the Eucharist thus compels all who believe in him to become 'bread that is broken' for others, and to work for the building of a more just and fraternal world."

Daily Eucharist Quote – St. Thomas Aquinas

Daily Eucharist Quote – St. John Vianney

"Just as Moses in striking the rock in the desert made water flow from it to quench the thirst of the Jews, so the thorns and nails which pierced the flesh of Christ, the scourges which tore it, have opened an inexhaustible source of graces for Christian souls, which the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass [...]

Daily Eucharist Quote – St. John Vianney

"The Holy Mass consists of the words of Consecration. How wonderful it is! After the Consecration the good God is there as He is in heaven. If men really knew this mystery they would die of love. God has to spare us because of our weakness. The Holy Sacrifice is the same as that which [...]

"We have all seen men, and women, too, pass the whole night, even several in succession, playing at chess or cards; and what can be a more dismal, unwholesome thing than that? But the world has not a word to say against it, and their friends are nowise troubled. But give up an hour to [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – Thomas a’ Kempis

"Jesus has always many who love His heavenly kingdom, but few who bear His cross. He has many who desire consolation, but few who care for trial. He finds many to share His table, but few to take part in His fasting. All desire to be happy with Him; few wish to suffer anything for [...]
